Tuesdays performance together with flautist Anna Melander became as experimental and improvised as we wished. Here are some pictures from our experience at Viva Las Palmas. A special thanks to our friends Nils Berg, Josef Kallerdahl and Viktor Skokic who invited us to play at their fantastic event, and a warm thanks to Strapelia Asterias for making a beautiful shadow play behind us!

Bar∂arbunga drone

Thanks to all of our audience in Höfn, Egilsta∂ir and Reykjavik in Iceland! We are so happy that you all took us with open arms. This trip will be remembered for lots of things. One is the very interesting work in progress with Ragnhei∂ur Sigurðardóttir Bjarnarson that me and David – Laurna Røde – experienced during the whole trip. Another is the presence of potential eruptions of the Bar∂arbunga glacier volcanos. Very inspiring for us as a drone duo. Laurna Røde can´t wait to go back!

Laurna Røde at Voices from the Waters

August 19th, 2013 § 0 comments § permalink

At this special occasion Laurna Røde (Helena Persson and David Sabel) works with the sound of the water as a drone, using e-bows and guitars. The duo carves out a soundscape from silence and chaos, an intense and at the same time peaceful sound experience where frequencies and harmonies are in focus.

Shot from Verona Risuona

May 13th, 2013 § Comments Off on Shot from Verona Risuona § permalink

May 9 and 11, 2013, sound installation and live performance with David Sabel at Verona Risuona festival, Verona, Italy.

This Saturday, the streets of Verona City were filled with performances, installations and artists. This is a shot from Porta Borsari where you could hear the sounds from steel stringed acoustic guitars played with e-bows along with a soundscape recorded in Verona. Luckily we also had a nice live soundscape from the people, walls and surroundings of the space we played in.

Performers in this clip: David Sabel and Helena Persson.
